Saturn turns direct on the 29th September and this is good news for many!

The planet of discipline and hard work turns direct in Capricorn. Saturn feels most comfortable in Capricorn, the sign it rules over, and when it turns direct in its own sign, we are able to understand the restrictions placed on us and why they exist, even if we don’t welcome them.

You’ve no doubt been feeling restricted due to COVID-19, so rest assured that with Saturn turning direct things are going to get a little bit easier in the sense that your understanding and tolerance will be stronger.

Remember, Saturn is the planet of hard knocks. His lessons are not always the easiest, but when we look back on why things happened the way they did, we see how Saturn helped to shape us as individuals.

About Saturn Direct in Capricorn

When a planet is retrograde, it appears to be moving slower in a backward direction. The point of every retrograde period with every planet is that the planet is not moving forward, and thus the themes of that planet in that sign and in your specific chart are not moving forward either.

Saturn retrograde is a very karmic period, as Saturn is a planet of karma and time. There’s been a lot of “hurry up and wait” for many during this period, and that period has been immediately connected to your karmic path.

Saturn Retrograde in Capricorn Coming to an End

All in all, this is a time for you to work on what you want to achieve. Saturn direct enables us to start taking responsibility. We enter a period where we think, “okay, fine, if this is how it has to be then I’m going to make the best of it.”

While the retrograde may have made it feel like things were going slow motion, over the next few days, you’ll feel normality returning.

It may not be as fun to deal with the responsibilities that mundane life thrusts upon you, but that’s what is necessary to create long-term stability, so you’ll have time for recreation and play later on.

Saturn direct in Capricorn has no time for slacking or tantrum-throwing. You need to make smart choices, practice discipline and maturity, create plans that you stick to, and act responsibly. Saturn doesn’t reward you for taking shortcuts or being inconsiderate or not growing up. That makes Saturn really mad, and then comes the Saturn drama!
